2019 TaiSPO developed a new exhibition area – ‘Smart sports Pavilion’. Makalot, a member of the Taiwan Smart Textile Association and exhibitor, remarked that “this year, many fitness manufacturers and event organizers from Thailand, Malaysia and South Korea looked for smart products. We are seeing fruitful results.” South Korea’s ‘DAEJEON TECHNOPARK’ saw to the participation of new Korean entrepreneurs for the first time. Products include simulated skateboards, golf swing electronic-assisted exercise machines and 4D somatosensory fitness games. Exhibitors are satisfied with the results and will expand their participation next year. ‘Taiwan Excellence’ also participated in this year’s show, exhibiting 18 different sporting goods from 16 brand enterprises, which won the Taiwan Excellence Award, including innovative value products developed by Taiwanese industry representatives such as Yan, Merida, and more. Taiwan Excellence is dedicated to enhancing Taiwan's industrial image and building buyer's confidence in Taiwanese products.
